Jeff Klauk was a shooting star in 2003 after he won the Wichita Open.
"A lot of people have a seizure in their life, so when I had two of them I got on some medication and everything was fine," Klauk said. "Then I was driving to church on Christmas Eve, 2010 things changed for sure."
Klauk suffered what's called a Grand Mal seizure, losing consciousness and had some violent muscle spasms. He was diagnosed with epilepsy that year and still suffers from it's effects weekly. He takes medicine to combat the disorder and decided in 2012 to undergo brain surgery.
The epilepsy effected his motor skills. He lost his drivers license and couldn't drive and could barely swing a club. The medication works but the friends and family help more.
"Thank goodness I had a bunch of friends to get me around at home," Klauk said. "Now I can take my kids to places and not rely on my wife."
Klauk's game is finally turning around. He has made three cuts in seven events this season on the web.com Tour and four of eight on the PGA Tour making almost $163,000. He's earned over $2.7M in his career on the course.
"I'm just trying to get back in a routine - those eight starts I had on Tour were decent, nothing spectacular," Klauk said. "Had a chance to win in Mexico last Sunday and just didn't finish it off but good stuff is going to happen this summer."
